Prayer for Grief

Lord, I praise you because you are my healer and deliverer. You have promised to deliver me from anything that threatens to destroy me.

I am experiencing grief because of my loss and I ask you to help me overcome it.

It is a struggle to wake up each day and function normally. I cry most of the time and feel weary from my grief. 

I am bent over and racked with pain and all day long. I walk around filled with grief (Psalm 38:6).

My strength is gone because I spend a lot of time rehashing my loss and wondering why it had to happen to me.

I feel sad and lonely and crushed on the inside. My mind is full of negative thoughts and I can’t think straight.

Others have lost hope in my recovery and I have no one to comfort me.

No one seems to understand the depth of my pain.

I will strengthen myself in you because you understand the depth of my pain.

Help me during my grieving period and help me deal with my grief the right way.

May your word give me comfort because you are a compassionate Father who is sensitive to the pain of your children. 

You are my God and my safe haven and I don’t have to go around depressed because of my grief (Psalm 43:2).

I run to you today because you are my refuge and hiding place. Rescue me from the dark feelings that are threatening to take over my soul.

Show me how to process my pain and leave my unanswered questions with you.

I know that in due course you will give me a greater understanding of my situation. 

Give me hope and brighten my day with your counsel. Fill my heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit and gladness to carry me through each day.

May your promises preserve my life and take away thoughts of doom and gloom. You are my life and my source of encouragement.

Help me find others who can encourage me during this trying time.

Give me divine connections with those who will understand my situation and give me godly counsel. 

Help me heal before making long term decisions about my life. My judgment is clouded at the moment and I wouldn’t want to make decisions that I will later regret.

I will be patient with myself as I deal with my grief and allow you time to minister to my broken heart.

Take away my sorrow and fill my heart with praise that I may live again. 

You are my hope and salvation and may I keep my eyes on you always.

You are my helper and I can rely on you for strength. Renew my strength and refresh my spirit once more.

You give power to the weak and I ask that you fill me with yours. I thank you because I know you have heard my prayer and answered it.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
